Professor Fernando Izaurieta‘s first book is a journey into black holes, fierce monsters of space and time. Using scientific thinking, his account takes us from the beginning of time at the big bang to its destruction in the singularity of black holes. Science, the method of doubt and skepticism, is the key to deciphering the mysteries of the universe and also to discovering how to forge a future for humanity even in its moments of crisis. Through an agile story, together with everyday and accessible examples, in these pages we can peek inside black holes. There, the ideas of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking lead us to visualize phenomena so violent and strange that they make the great works of science fiction pale. Black holes, destroyers of time shows us how science allows us to go beyond the limits of our imagination to understand the most unknown and exciting places in the cosmos.
